I made a Devil's Food pumpkin shaped cake and strawberry cupcakes for the non chocolate lover set (nuts that they are).
Grace was pretty excited to be six.
After the party, three of the girls came home with us for another sleepover. The were the same three that stayed in the summer. They all made it through the night but I had to divide them up to get them to sleep. Two in Grace's room and two in our room on the floor.
They were all really good. You can see that Bryon got wrestled down and had a makeover done on him. That my friend is about every color of eye shadow in the case and a whole lot of lip gloss covering his head and face. He's such a good sport and the girls just loved it.
The first memory I have of Bryon is of him in the Junior High hallway surrounded by girls...hmmm...I guess some things never change :)

She loves shooting it and Bryon loves being out there with her. She usually hits the target so they are both pretty excited about the possibilities.
I hadn't had my bow out in about SEVEN years. In fact, the case was covered in sawdust and cobwebs when we finally tracked it down out in the barn. It's an old Bear bow and Bryon about laughed his ass off when he saw it come out of the case. I had an old flipper arrow rest on it and he was appalled! He's gone through three or four bows since we first bought my Bear and his first bow years ago.
I knocked some arrows and shot a nice tight group at 10 and 20 yards thank you very much. I was actually sort of surprised and it did short of give me the bug to want to shoot some more. There used to be an archery shop with a range in Nixa when we lived in Highlandville and they had a shooting league one year. We participated and we both got 1st place trophies that year in the competition. It was fun.
He thinks I'm crazy to not want to hunt and complains that he used to have a wife that hunted with him. I tell him, I have put in more hunting time through the years than any other wife he knows. He's still disgruntled. Turns out now I'd just rather sleep in, stay warm and enjoy some peace and quiet while they are out chasing things around the woods.
Who's crazy now my friend.
I guess we are just ensuring our redneck status doesn't fall to the wayside.
Looks like we are pretty safe.
